Your face, Lord, will I seek...
Today Pastor Love was delayed arriving to the grades 6-12 chapel, so I took the opportunity to address the students and tell what was on my heart. I told them that when asked by Pastor Schaller before the school year began what I desired for our school, I said one word: Revival. I explained to the students that every one of them can have a ministry and reveal Christ if they seek God's face, like Psalm 27:8 says: "When you said, "Seek My face," my heart said to You, "Your face, Lord, will I seek."
I am counting on God to raise up the next generation of Christian leaders, because, if Christ tarries, we are going to need them to replace those of us who are getting a bit long in the tooth. More than that, though, I believe that our young people can be leaders and have a ministry right NOW. Pastor Brian told our seniors on the senior retreat that if they were dropped as a group in a foreign country, they could turn that country upside-down for Christ because of the life they have inside them. I agree.
We ended the chapel with a time of prayer, and I hope that you will join me in prayer for a divine, Word of God, Holy Spirit-filled revival in the GGCA student body. Let's seek God's face together and expect that we will find Him and be blessed in both the seeking and the finding.
